    Default Chicago away

    Hi! Has anyone been to an away game at Chicago Fire? We're going in August and wondering if anyone has any info about which section buy tickets in, and whether there's a TFC pre-game plan and/or ways to travel to the ground together. Thanks

    Hey Jenni, I bought a pair in section 134 which is their away supporters section. My friend an I are going to the Jays-Cubs game at Wrigley at 1:20pm CST and going to take the "Pub-to-Pitch" bus from the Globe Pub to the Fire game, departing at 5pm. There's a closer bus that leaves AJ's at 4:30 but opting for more time at the Jays game if necessary. If you're not going to the baseball game there are lots of pickup pubs and drinking cans is allowed on the bus. You can buy bus tickets here: https://www.chicago-fire.com/matchday/pubtopitch

    I'm in a small supporters group so not sure what the big-boys have planned in terms of pre-game meetups but it should be awesome! Anyone else here making the trip?

    Thanks for this info. Very good to know. Is it $15 USD roundtrip?

    It's in the members only section. You need to join our group to get the tickets. http://redpatchboys.ca/membership/

    Hey Jenni, we're doing the exact same thing as you! Jays game on Fri afternoon then TFC on Saturday evening. There are about 9 of us travelling, we have tickets in the TFC section, 134. Does anyone know if 9 of us will be ok on a Chicago Fire supporters bus doing the pub to pitch thing? Would be good to all meet up in the same bar somewhere downtown before the game

    There are 3 breweries within 1 mile of the Globe Pub...if drinking is your thing. Great place to grab cans for the bus trip/tailgate...and post game of course!

    Spoke to the guy in the Fire ticket office I bought my tickets from and he said that the Fire are trying to organize supporter group buses from downtown to Toyota Park for TFC fans. Anyone here heard about this? I asked him to let me know if this goes ahead. I don't want to buy tickets for a Fire bus if I can go with other TFC fans

    I haven't heard of this...but you can count me in for 4 spots if that is the case. That would be awesome. Do you have an email for the Fire ticket guy?

    He was very helpful and quickly responded to my request for 8 tickets. My group is planning to attend the Saturday afternoon baseball game and proceed to the evening soccer game. We would be interested in a bus too.

    I'm so slow on this forum, sorry. Great news, we'd love to get together with other TFC fans for the game. I can see there's a few of you at least.

    @ChrisFizic no one replied on the email address you suggested.

    @YYZ_Fan & @Scotty74 - thanks for the info on tickets and buses, will email this guy now. Hopefully we can all get together for a few beers first.

    When I booked our tickets for Jays a few months ago, the Saturday was almost entirely sold out except some restricted view. Just FYI. I'm sure you could get them on StubHub etc.

    Interested in 4 bus tickets if you can get them. There are 39 seats left on the Fire bus from my most recent search.

    He sent me a link to the tickets but said they don't organize transport for visiting fans. Huh. I'll try and email the RPB email address again.

    Louis just wrote back and said. "When I speak with visiting fans. I ask the traveling supporters if they would like to organize a bus from downtown. Your fans declined to organize a bus for general fans for this match."

    No idea whether he was talking about TFC, RPB or another supporters group. Anyways I have emailed RPB again to see if anything is being organized.

    Let us know what RPB say, if not do you think we have enough between us all on here to get the Fire to organize a bus for us?

    Things will be in the works as we get closer to the date everyone. Including a meetup beforehand on the ground in Chicago, which is standard. Members can get involved with all this planning ahead of time!

    You should come by Joe's on any match day before then and say hi!

    We're there most match days, alas not this one. I don't know who is who from RPB, but will try and find you next time.

    @Scotty74 - I think it's like 40 people so probably not. Let's see what transpires nearer the time!

    I'm not a member of RPB Chris, neither is any of my group travelling, will we be ok to go with the RPB?

    I can't make either of the next 2 home games before the Chicago trip, or I would of defo come to Shoeless joe's beforehand

    of course of course - there'll likely be a large pub gathering before heading out. Keep an eye out for updates, here, social media etc

    Fire are sold out of tickets!! Nothing left in the away section! I bought 4 standing room only tickets and will hope that my Red friends will make room for us in 134.
    I have no idea what we will do before the match other than the tailgate in the south lot that's designated "Away tailgate section". We do plan to do some tourist stuff!!

    I am also going to the Friday Jays/Cubs game. I have two extra tickets for the Jays game if anyone is interested. Sec 114 row 13. I paid $340USD for the pair. That's all I want for them. Let me know if anyone's interested.
